HC Deb 09 April 1986 vol 95 cc135-6W
24. Mr. Philip Oppenheim

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many personnel are employed on trade promotion activities in British diplomatic posts in Japan.

In Osaka there are two United Kingdom-based and six locally-engaged staff (of which three are senior commercial officers and three are supporting staff). Her Majesty's ambassador also devotes much of his time to trade promotion.
